About me

My life

I was born in Belgium, where I lived until my 43rd, together with my husband and my two, now adult, children. After obtaining my Master in Law and Diploma in Business and Administration, I worked in a bank in Brussels for 2 years and 16 years in a large non-profit organisation where I was responsible for human resources and part of the finances. In 2010 I embarked upon the expat adventure with my husband and children, first three years in the United Kingdom (Manchester) and from 2013 in Germany (Starnberg by Munich). This move abroad has changed a lot in my life, not only practically but mainly in terms of life wisdom. It made me realise that it gives me a great deal of satisfaction to help people and that I can also transform this into my profession. That is why I retrained as a certified life-and business coach and obtained my diploma at the Coaching Academie Berlin.

My network

I have been fortunate enough to have had very good instructors at the Berlin Coaching Academy, as well as very talented fellow students, some of whom have taken up the coaching profession and with whom I still keep in touch on a regular basis. Furthermore, as an expat, one comes into contact with many international people, groups and organisations, that continuously enrich my life. For example, I was a member of the Board of Directors of the Munich International School for 3 years, an assignment that I fulfilled with great pleasure and interest.
